Writers' Trust Gala
Miriam Toews accepts the $50,000 Writers' Trust Fellowship at the 2016 gala
The Writers’ Trust Gala brings the business and arts communities together in support of Canadian writers and writing. One of the most anticipated and prestigious events of the year, the gala boasts a lively, literary energy unlike any other fundraiser in the city.
The gala is brought to life by dynamic dinner guests, including a Canadian writer at every table. Past guest authors include such luminaries as Margaret Atwood, Joseph Boyden, Miriam Toews, Emma Donoghue, Anne Michaels, Adrienne Clarkson, Noah Richler, Ann-Marie MacDonald, and Lawrence Hill.
The highlight of the evening is the presentation of the $50,000 Writers Trust Fellowship, part of a three-year plan to award $150,000 to Canadian writers in celebration of the upcoming sesquicentennial.
Chairs: Don Tapscott and Ana P. Lopes
Committee: Sharon Haward-Laird, Peter Kahnert, Jennifer Lambert, Marla Lehberg, Mary Osborne, Neve Peric, and Patti Thorlakson.
